Come on right in!
Pretty entertaining newsreel of various subjects from 1924. That's when of course Calvin Coolidge was president. As a matter of fact, the first story we see generals, army folk and the general public streaming into the White House for a reception! It didn't look like the police didn't check anyone for anything. They just streamed them right in. Other stories are about a park grooming, woman candidates, runners and other subjects. Great parade footage included too.
